The perfect one night stay
The Sofitel had everything we needed for our one night stay in Wellington. A comfy bed, quick wifi, good water pressure in the shower, and a walkable location. I've stayed at a lot of hotels in the area and this is one I'd definitely come back to.

Very good hotel near the botanic gardens
Sofitel lived up 2 its usual standards. Excellent, the only thing you could fault it on was that the vast majority of restaurants on a weekend are located near cuba street about 1-2 kms away. Besides that thoroughly recommend
